Inspired by a book of the same name (and one of Sir Quentin’s favourites amongst his titles), Quentin Blake’s Clown is a half hour animation bringing to life the adventures of a little toy clown, thrown away with a load of old discarded toys, as he goes on a journey to find a new loving home for himself and his friends. Created with traditional hand drawn animation techniques to capture the unique style of Quentin Blake’s artwork, the programme is narrated by iconic British star Helena Bonham-Carter.
